In Honour of Haiku Day . . .

I dislike poems,
But I hate feeling left out,
So I wrote one too.

Okay, so that's not really a proper haiku. (No seasonal reference; Haiku are meant to have a seasonal reference, aren't they)? But I really *don't* like feeling left out ::grin::, so here is a better one, about the barrel pond in my backyard:

Sun heats the water - -
Leaves of lilies float on top,
Tiny fish swimming.

Order of the Phoenix Chapter 22 Discussion Going on Now at HPFGU

Hey, folks . . . just a quick note to say that I've just posted a Chapter Discussion post on HPFGU (the first one I've written; I signed up to do it months and months ago, and mostly forgot about it until Petra reminded me last week ::grin::).

It's a summary of Chapter 22 (St. Mungo's Hospital), which contains one of the book's most heartbreaking moments for me. There are also some questions at the end of the summary, as a starting place for discussion. If you'd like to read it and join in the discussion, you'll find it here.

If you're not a member of HPFGU, I've also archived it to my_hp_theories, in this entry, so you can read and discuss it there, if you prefer.
